Well, with USB Netgear wireless device, you might need to check the Netgear website for the driver for Linux.
RedHat 9 or even latest version of RedHat/Fedora may not have USB wireless device driver built-in.

The following link give you some information for which wireless card are supported in Linux

You could also check ndiswrapper:

http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/

There is a list of supported devices. If Netgear doesn't have a linux driver, you might be able to use the Windoze XP drivers in combination with ndiswrapper.
